WASHINGTON, D.C. (Covering Katy) – The office of Congressman Michael T. McCaul is accepting submissions for the 2019 Congressional Art Competition for high school students.
“The Congressional Art Competition is a special opportunity to showcase the talent of our local high school artists across the country in the halls of the U.S. Capitol. Every year I continue to be stunned by the extraordinary work submitted by the young artists in Texas’ 10th district. I look forward to seeing this year’s entries and invite all high school students to consider submitting their artwork.”
The Congressional Art Competition is open to all high school students residing in the 10th Congressional District. The winning piece will be on display for one year in the U.S. Capitol along with other winners from across the country. The winner will receive two complimentary airline tickets to Washington, D.C. to view the exhibit and will also be invited to a reception for all of the winners across the nation.
The second place artwork will be on display in one of our four district offices.
